Health is the most valuable asset. Health and aging have healthy relationships. We can not buy it or extend our lives. If we do not take care of ourselves, our health can deteriorate. Health and aging correlate. When we act and use clean food and water, thinking positive thoughts, aging does not seem like the scary journey towards disappearance from the surface of the Earth.
The Health and Aging
Why Do We Age
Till now, the whole aging mechanism is not solved. Scientists and doctors are on the research path for rejuvenating tools. Unfortunately, we will go to the next place after leaving this precious Earth sooner or later.
Anyway, our health and aging are connected. When health is correct, we get older, but it does not seem like a burden. We are slow and flexible. We think longer. We are intelligent and wise.
There are a few theories about why we age. The first theory states that balance is disrupted between new and old cells in the body. When communication between hormones and cells is mixed, the body gets old.
Oxidation plays a significant role too. Free radicals attack cells and damage them. If oxidative harm is reduced, the aging process can slow down. Lifespan would expand.
The Art of Positive Thinking
Everybody knows that happy and optimistic people attract more luck and have a better outcome in life. Of course, there are cases where positivity did not solve all problems. However, it helped to overcome them more easily.
Positive thinking increases the body’s ability to stand against unpleasant events. Our immune system reacts to our thoughts too. There were so many stories when people decided not to give up and achieved their dreams to overcome life’s obstacles.
The Lifestyle Approach
There are risk factors that affect health and speed off aging.
- High blood pressure
- Use of tobacco
- High cholesterol
- Lack of fruit and vegetable intake
- Overuse of alcohol
- Being overweight
- Lack of physical activity
( Carolyn Dean “Death of Modern Medicine, “298)
These factors lead to the deterioration of health and premature aging. It is a pity that most people do not think they can change their lifestyle and lead happy lives.
The information is the key to better health and happy life. I think that everybody knows that they will be old someday. However, it is a big difference between being a healthy senior and a human being who has plenty of problems with health.
Prevention is the primary step towards good health and golden years. Health and aging depend on you. We can be older but in good shape, if we follow common sense and understand instructions from doctors and professionals.
